It’s easy to think that just because one of only two Icelandic Airlines has stopped operations you might have trouble getting here, but that’s definitely not the case.

There are multiple ways to get to the land of fire and ice for that dream vacation you’ve been wanting to tick off your bucket list. Plus, although it might be a little cheeky to mention, the Icelandic króna is sure to experience some drops, which means if you are a tourist you will get more bang for your buck, or pound, or euro.

Air travel is, of course, the most common way to get here. Iceland’s oldest airline, Icelandair is still going strong and has been since 1937. Icelandair services many destinations throughout Europe and America, but there are also a number of other airlines that can get you to and from Iceland.

We’ve put together a list of all the airlines currently operating flights to and from Iceland by country to help you plan your trip.

Iceland Travel

There is also a ferry called Norröna that travels from Hirtshals in Denmark to Seyðisfjörður in Iceland’s east with a stop in Tórshavn, The Faroe Islands. The journey is about 36 hours in total. An added benefit for those travelling from mainland Europe is that you can take a car, 4WD or Camper Van on the ferry and be able to drive around Iceland once you have docked.

British Airline SuperBreak also offers select international flights to both Reykjavik (KEF) and Akureyri in Iceland’s north.
